It’s been about three decades since Apple first rolled out its Macintosh personal computers to retail shelves. And to celebrate, members of the Boston Computer Society managed to dig up video footage of Apple founder Steve Jobs giving a live demonstration of the machine a week after debuting it to shareholders.
This is the first time the video, which is archived by the Computer History Museum, has been available to the general public since it was shot nearly 30 years ago.
The video runs about 96 minutes and shows how the young Jobs first captured the attention of the tech geeks of the era. Give it a watch and let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
